If you're like me, you've put off cleaning your refrigerator for way too long because you're intimidated by the enormity of the task. You probably have leftovers in there that no human should ever eat, and I wouldn't doubt that an unpleasant smell wafts out every time you open the door. You shouldn't have to live like this, nor should you have to devote an entire afternoon to the task of cleaning that monster! Who has that kind of time, anyway?
This method is for those who would rather not take each item out of the fridge, put it into a cooler, scrub every surface from top to bottom, and put it all back again (and then not be able to find things for the next few days because they're out of their usual places). If you don't mind that method, go ahead and keep using it. But if you're looking for a quicker solution, read on.
All you'll need for this job is a wastebasket and a container of some of those antibacterial cleaning wipes, like Lysol or Clorox brand. (If you don't have those, some antibacterial cleaning spray and paper towels will work just as well; it's just not as convenient.)
If you have a problem with unpleasant smells, just keep an open box of baking soda in the fridge. It will absorb the odors. Now your fridge should be clean and germ-free.
